Default Barrel Racer

I wonder how that barrel stays attached to the bike while "barrelling" down the highway

Nah mate - you've got it all rong...

It's not a barrel on the back of the bike - it's the aero-turbo with the dust cover still attached

Reminds me of the Bear Barrels, say that fast, we used to use for camping.

Looks like the barrel is bolted to the seat assembly. I used to use a dry bag to keep my stuff dry. They are mainly used for rafting, canoeing, etc. but are excellent for motorcycles.

I would think that a barrel this size could affect handling (depending on the weight) and add wind resistance. Just remembering from my active motorcycling days.
